We celebrated my wife's birthday in style at the private dining room at Cafe Sydney and it was fantastic. There were 10 of us (the room can take up to 14) and as the private dining room and private balcony overlook Sydney Harbour we had pre-lunch drinks and canapes on the balcony. This was followed by a great lunch where we were able to order from the regular menu in the privacy and quiet of this dining room. The food and service were excellent and we had a leisurely lunch without being rushed. A delicious chocolate birthday cake at the end was the finishing touch.

We're visiting friends in Sydney and they made the reservations. They wanted a place with a wonderful view of the harbor. While they booked a window table we were not seated at one and they couldn't accommodate our request. They seated us at a table that only 2 of us had a view. The service was good and the food was very tasty. Lunch for four with a bottle of wine came to $247 US. We had 2 fried squid appetizers that were Thai inspired, Grilled octopus that was Italian influenced, tandoori salmon, braised beef cheeks and an Angus tenderloin.

I rarely give 5. But last night at Cafe Sydney was a ‘Five Star Experience’.

The food was just excellent - all our choices. Very good wine. And what a setting - with wonderful views over Circular Quay to the Harbour Bridge and Luna Park - really lovely when lit up.

All the staff were pleasant and service timing was just right.

The reason for the title above is I asked our waiter Hugh (who was very personable and informative all night) to serve my coffee WITH my desert. From experience I know restaurants find this a challenge. But Hugh took the trouble of making the coffee himself to ensure they arrived together.

Cafe Sydney is not cheap. But given the location, the quality and tastiness of their food and their excellent staff it makes for a most memorable occasion. Worth the money. Well worth a visit.

A tip: book well in advance and ask for a table in the front row on the terrace.
